(A) Falguiere's Diana starts the show, haughty and self-satified wench that she appears to be. She's just under 10 inches tall, and what a deep rich patina, way bettah than any tanning salon could provide. I'm in love with that flippant shoulder, myself. She rests on a small plinth of black plastic about a half inch high. (e-mail Jack for a price)

 

 

(C) Another bust at 17 inches of height is this lovely Asian or Eurasian, or Afro-Asian Art Deco woman, perched upon a faux-painted wood plinthe. The glaze has a subtle crackle finish, barely discernible in this photo. The muted colors, the hair style, the crook of the neck -- it's "ooo-la-la" time again in the hen-house, n'est-ce pas? Would you believe this was made in Denmark? It's marked on the base of the porcelain! (e-mail Jack for a price)

 

 

(E) Another figure more "sculpture" than figurine, all done up in her verdigris patina, here caught dallying dans le jardin. She's 22 inches tall and signed MARTAUS. (e-mail Jack for a price)

 

 

(G) And this spelter beauty is by Garcia. Garcia?! Who knows, maybe he sculpted when on vacation in France! She stands 9 tall and is in restored but good condition. (e-mail Jack for a price)

 

 

(N) Probably inspired by a visit to Tahiti or some South Sea inland, this fetching carving is signed R. Supaud (or something like that). It's large and heavy, being carved from a hard wood and having the significant dimensions of 23 inches high, 14 wide, 3 1/2 thick. (e-mail Jack for a price)
